In 2010, Eli Bronner and his Lua Technologies co-founders were this exact profile of entrepreneurs, and New York City was an exuberant tech ecosystem without much structure or identity.

Incredible Week In New York

Feld Thoughts

As I was catching up on email from last week (not quite done yet) I was reflecting on the awesome week I had in New York. I had a couple of board meetings, spent a bunch of time at TechStars , gave some talks, had a pair of really fun late night dinners, had two strong runs (including one amazing one) along the east river, and stayed up until 1am drinking scotch with my partner Seth one night who was also in New York for a few days this week.

Book: Tech and the City: The Making of New York’s Startup Community

Feld Thoughts

On Digital Sabbath #5, I read Tech and the City: The Making of New York’s Startup Community. I got through half of it on my flight home from New York on Saturday morning; the balance laying on the couch next to Amy on Saturday evening. If you are involved in the New York startup community, this is a must read book. One thing that jumped out at me that Alessandro segmented the New York startup community into six neighborhoods.

Welcome New York to the Global EIR Coalition

Feld Thoughts

Last week New York was the third state to create a program – called the International Innovators Initiative (IN2NYC) – based on the construct of the Global Entrepreneur in Residence program.

What are the best New York City events to attend to meet VC’s and Angel investors?

Gust

Although there are many, many excellent events each week in New York that it would make sense for a startup entrepreneur to attend (see Gary’s Guide, Startup Digest, or This Week in NY Innovation), the truth is that (a) VCs and serious investors don’t go to most of them, and (b) the odds are slim that even if you and the investor were at the same event, you will have the opportunity or time to do more than say hello.

"There are roughly three New York’s. There is, first, the New York of the man or woman who was."

Mark Birch

“ There are roughly three New York’s. There is, first, the New York of the man or woman who was born here, who takes the city for granted and accepts its size and its turbulence as natural and inevitable. Second, there is the New York of the commuter—the city that is devoured by locusts each day and spat out each night. Third, there is the New York of the person who was born somewhere else and came to New York in quest of something.

What are the differences between startups/tech companies founded in Silicon Valley and those founded in New York?

Gust

On the other hand, since New York is the undisputed capital of the financial, fashion and advertising worlds, we have many, many more FinTech, AdTech and Fashion-based startups here than one is likely to find in the Valley. Uncategorized investments new york silicon valley startups tech

Doing The Top Of Mind Drill At TechStars New York

Feld Thoughts

On Tuesday, I spent the day at TechStars New York. David Cohen and I then hopped on a train, cranked on emails and interviews all the way to New York, and then I finished the night (after some more email) with a one hour lecture by Skype to a class of San Diego based students. I’m super psyched about all the teams I met – it feels like the TechStars New York program is very high quality and off to a great start.

My New York Zen Moment

START-UP BUSINESS TALK

Last week I had a zen moment while in New York. I moved to Columbus from New York City and make frequent trips back to visit family and conduct business, so I still consider myself a New York City.

There are three New York Cities

Chris Dixon

There are roughly three New Yorks. There is, first, the New York of the man or woman who was born here, who takes the city for granted and accepts its size and turbulence as natural and inevitable. Second, there is the New York of the commuter—the city that is devoured by locusts each day and spat out each night.
